22oz bottle poured into pint glass - thanks to raoulduke37
Poured a clearer golden color with some copper hues. A thick, fluffy head peeks out over the top of the glass and retains a solid layer over the beer. Plenty of ringed, patchy lacing as well.
Nice whiff of juicy hops, fruit sweetness, and doughy, almost buttery malt notes.
Super juicy bitter hops up front with blood orange and apricot. Citrusy zest and a small touch of rind. Sweetness peeks through towards the middle, followed by doughy caramel malts and a faint suggestion of butter. Finishes with another wave of hop bitterness and a subtle alcohol warmth.
Fuller medium body, a bit creamy, decent carbonation, somewhat dry as well. Near invisible alcohol, solid flavor, and definitely something I'd drink again. I should have no problem finishing off the rest of this bomber.
